[OS X TeX] So what to do with MacTeX?

	So I've been watching all the discussion about the new MacTeX  
distribution, and as a fairly intermediate mac user (i.e., not afriad  
of the command line, can read some code, can do most of what I want  
with TeX, but can't and don't want to program or HAVE to deal with  
too much stuff under the hood), I'd be interested in seeing what  
people advise.

	I installed the previous version of MacTeX (the 10 November  
version), which seems to be based on GW's TeXLive i-package (since I  
update it through the i-Installer).  Now that there's an updated  
version of MacTeX, which we've discussed much on the list, is there  
any reason to install that?  Or should I perhaps wait for the dust to  
settle and do that after 1 January?  What advantage will be conferred  
to me by "upgrading"(?) to the newest MacteX?
